Connelly Voodoo Wakesurf Board – Good for Beginners?

In addition, the Thermo Shell outer construction makes it lightweight and buoyant. Therefore, it’s easier to maneuver and requires less effort to surf around the water.

The compression molded design also makes the Voodoo durable and strong. So, it can stand up to frequent use by multiple people. (Plus, it helps keep the cost lower.)

Note: The company also makes the Connelly Ride specifically for beginners. It is a good intro package, in part because it costs under $300.

However, the Ride is a very basic board and only allows for surf style riding. The Voodoo offers more versatile riding, since it is a hybrid surf/skim board. Therefore, you can get more use out of it.

Easily Control Your Wakesurfer:

Good Board Design, Speed and Stability will Help You More Easily Maneuver Your Wakesurf Board

And if that wasn’t enough, the Voodoo wakesurf board is reactive and can move fast if you want it to. For example, simply by putting more weight on your front foot, you can speed up the board to move quickly into the sweet spot of the wake.

The swallowtail design helps the wakesurfer glide faster as well, because it helps the board release off the wake.

Therefore, you can stay surfing for longer without the rope, even if you are new to the sport. This means people can learn faster, ride longer and gain a lot more confidence to try carving, spins and other tricks.

Learning to Wakesurf – Made Easier!

The twin fin design helps give the Voodoo its surf-style ride, while making it easy to turn and maneuver. In addition, the blunted nose and swallow tail design make this wakesurfer very forgiving.

In other words, this stable and controllable wakesurfer is a great board for beginners to learn on. Plus, the wider nose and tail increase the board’s surface area so it can support big and tall riders.

Less Nose Dives While Surfing!

Finally, the nose of this wakesurfer has a slight rocker, which helps prevent nose dives. This feature makes surfing a lot easier, especially for beginners.

When you accidentally put too much weight on your front foot, boards without that rocker can dig straight down into the water. Then, your ride is done.

With the slight upward curve in the board nose, the wakesurf board is more forgiving. Hence, you don’t have to worry so much about diving under water.

Note: By the way, the Voodoo Wakesurf Board rides well on small waves. Therefore, if your boat produces a smaller wake, you can get better performance from a wakesurfer like this.

How the Voodoo Surfer Delivers Speed & Control:

The Connelly Voodoo features a swallowtail design with a twin fin setup. Together, you get a wakesurfer that rides fast, yet provides you with a good amount of control.

In other words, the back of the board won’t slow you down, causing you to fall out of the wake. Plus, you can maneuver the board more easily when turning and carving, as opposed to slipping around in the water.

Note: Without the center fin, the middle of the board has less resistance. As a result, this keeps the board fast, plus it minimizes friction so you can turn the board more easily.
